The Italian Cultural Institute of Paris presents the project ‘Arcipelaghi. Six regards photographiques sur l’insularité’ (Archipelagos: six photographic perspectives on island life), which, through an exhibition and a series of videos, brings together the work of six Italian photographers on Italy’s smaller islands. Each of them shows us a different way of looking at islands and introduces their work through video interviews available on the Institute’s YouTube channel.
Luana Rigolli is featured in the exhibition with a series on Linosa. Ilaria Abbiento talks to us about her work ‘Quaderno di un’isola’ (An Island Notebook), made in Ansinara. Nicola Dipierro presents his Iddu series, made on the island of Stromboli. Silvia Camporesi discusses her Planasia (Pianosa) series. Roselena Ramistella presents her project ‘Men of Troubled Waters’. The work of Cecilia Mangini is presented through her film ‘Un Viaggio a Lipari’ (A Trip to Lipari).
The situation of islanders, which is so distinctive, is a particularly rich literary theme explored in an interview with the writer Lorenza Pieri, author of the novel ‘Isole Minori’ (Small Island), published as ‘J’avais une île’ in French.
